MUMBAI: Three years after her last release Dilwale, Kajol is all set to return to the big screen after with Pradeep Sarkar’s Helicopter Eela. The actress will be seen playing a possessive mother in the film.
She gives up her dream of becoming a singer to raise her only child. Her son Riddhi Sen is a typical young millennial doesn’t want his mother’s life to revolve around him. Being an-over-protective mother, she decides to join her son’s college. Kajol is really excited about her role in Helicopter Eela.
Talking about her role, Kajol says, “As a mother, I felt a real connection with Eela’s character. She loves her son unconditionally and has built her life around him. But as he grows up, she finds herself becoming more and more dispensable. She has also put her life and dreams on hold, like so many mother’s do.
This is a life situation that so many women face once their kids grow up. And, one that I will inevitably face is, what do I do now? How do I hold on to my baby? In a way, Helicopter Eela is a coming of age film, more for Eela rather than it is for her son.” Produced by Ajay Devgn and Jayantilal Gada, the film is slated to release on 14th September.
